The democrat Governor from Colorado, Jared Polis, has plans to fall into lockstep with GOP governors. He will be sending migrants that come into Colorado to New York.
Gov. Jared Polis is shipping migrants out of Colorado and sending them to New York. The New York governor, Eric Adams, is complaining of his state being overrun by migrants that are sent from Texas, Florida, and other GOP run states.
Gov. Adams has made his complaint.
Adams made his comments during a radio appearance Tuesday morning.
“We were notified yesterday that the governor of Colorado is now stating that they are going to be sending migrants to places like New York and Chicago,” Adams said during a radio appearance. “This is just unfair for local governments to have to take on this national obligation.”
Thousands of migrants have attempted to cross into the U.S. from the southern border in recent weeks, in part because a Trump administration border policy, known as Title 42, was set to expire in December. The Supreme Court last week blocked the lifting of the policy, which allows the U.S. to expel migrants to stop the spread of Covid-19.
Here is a list of where migrants have come from and where they have been sent to.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott sent migrants last summer to Democrat run states such as New York, Washington D.C., and Chicago.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently flew nearly 50 migrants from Venezuela that crossed into Florida to Martha’s Vineyard.
Now, Democrat Governor Jared Polis is falling into lockstep with the GOP states of Texas and Florida by shipping migrants that come into his state off to New York.
Adams said Tuesday around 30,000 asylum seekers have arrived in New York City since the spring in need of food, shelter and education — a surge that has has stretched the city’s social service infrastructure to the breaking point and opened up huge risks for the municipal budget. Adams, along with the two Colorado leaders, have called on the federal government to provide assistance to localities dealing with the influx.
“No city should have to make a decisions if they’re going to provide for their citizens — particularly coming out of Covid — or if they’re going to deal with an onslaught of migrants and asylum seekers,” he said.
The democrats support illegal immigration and have opened wide our borders to this mess that we now face. They are getting a taste of their own medicine when GOP governors – and now Jared Polis – ship migrants that come from the open southern border to various major, metropolitan cities. Perhaps it is time for the Democrats to truly fall into lockstep with the GOP and work to develop a better plan to clean up the mess that they have made.
